Trade Show Booth Design Success!

by

Wedding Booth Vintage TypewriterWith our second Wedding MBA show now behind us, it’s time to share our trade show success!  I’m happy to report our booth came together perfectly, and we received plenty of great feedback.  But, in spite of the compliments, Vegas was not without hiccups, and unfortunately not without tragedy.

Before mentioning our triumphs, it needs to be noted that we were in Las Vegas during the deadliest mass shooting our nation has seen.  The following days were both saddening and heartwarming; watching both the news and the outpouring of love in Vegas.  The Knot and Wedding Wire, typically competitors, merged their two show events into one large party.  This gave the attendees that magical ‘one big happy family’ feeling.  Thank you to the Knot and Wedding Wire for merging the parties so quickly and completely and allowing us all to relax in a secure and fun environment.  I think all of Vegas needed a drink that night… but when doesn’t all of Vegas need a drink?

Our booth came together seamlessly, thanks to lots of planning.  We featured a gold, blush and cream color palette. Dripping in flowers, our booth was a stark contrast from last years more masculine colors and feel.  We created an inviting space that would be attractive and make our booth impossible to resist.  Now THAT’S trade show success!Wedding MBA booth 6130

In addition to welcoming colors, we boasted favors and giveaways to lure in the most resistant of show-goers.  Our favor options included: a hangover kit, candy and popcorn.  The popular hangover kit included an Emergen-C, Mint Lifesaver and Advil… all the essentials for surviving even the worst hangover.  The label says it all: Hangover Survival Kit; YOU’RE WELCOME.  Believe me, we received many thanks for giving this out the morning after the Knot and Wedding Wire party!  These make a great addition to any Wedding Welcome bag, or bachelor/bachelorette party favor.  Purchase the fun label here, the kraft bags here.  Finally, but the goodies inside from Amazon here: Advil, Lifesaver, Emergen-C.

Hangover Kit with Custom LabelsOther favors included a sweet Smartie and savory bag of microwave popcorn.  The popcorn was a simple microwave bag, purchased from the ever-trusty Costco, but you could use any brand.  We used the same Kraft bags that were utilized in our hangover kit to create an adorable brown paper package.  Then, all we had to do was tie it up with string!

Popcorn Party Favor with Custom Label

You can purchase Smarties in bulk from your local Party City.  Then, place it in this 3″ x 4″ self-sealing cellophane bag .  Next, add a small piece of chipboard and the perfect label, which can be purchased here, and you’ve got one SMART favor on your hands!Smartie Candy Favor with Custom Label

Our giveaways were our piece de resistance featuring 4 bottles of delicious and coveted BOOZE!  (Buy this CHEERS label here)  Here is one of our happy winners: a new friend from JC Room Blocks – a fantastic vendor that every bride needs!  If you are having a destination wedding, room blocks are par for the course, so give them a call!  You’ll be happy you did!

That’s officially a wrap on our trade show success folks!  See you next year at WED MBA 2018!

Choosing the right gifts for your wedding guests is essential for creating lasting memories of your special day. A wedding wine is an ideal way to remind your family and friends years later of the fantastic time they had at your wedding! A generic bottle with its original label is a nice gesture — but a personalized bottle with a custom label makes the gift a thoughtful, special, and meaningful memento.

Custom wine bottles are not just unique and creative gifts; they are cost-effective, too. You’ll save money by ordering just the wine labels for your bottles than specially labeled bottles direct from a winery. It is significantly less expensive to ship wine labels, too, than it is to purchase and ship custom labeled wine bottles. Buy the bottles separately at a local retailer and label yourself for more control, creativity, and savings.

So, where do you even start when choosing and designing your wedding wine label? We’re here to help!

Customize Your Wedding Rehearsal Dinner

by

elegant themed rehearsal dinner ideaAh, rehearsal dinners for weddings. A rite of passage, right? Whoever says rehearsal dinners need to be the same-old same-old have it all wrong. Brides get special showers, guys get bachelorette parties, sure – but the rehearsal dinner can be a time for the bride and groom to come together before their wedding and celebrate who they are as a couple. A few simple touches can really make your event pop – both that day and in memory. Let’s take a look at some great ideas.

Pick a Rehearsal Dinner Theme

creative rehearsal dinner themeYou don’t need to go crazy here – just pick a theme that will help tie your event together and make it a bit more personalized. Some folks love everything farm and tractor related – go ahead and honor it (even a few farm related photos in some frames will do the trick). For the couple who loves little more than putting around on the local greens, incorporate their love of golf into the night. For the couple who spends most of their their time at the theater, plan a night with a dramatic touch.

Pick a Rehearsal Dinner Menu

rehearsal dinner menu idea
When it comes to serving large groups of people fast, think speed and quantity over quality! Make as much food as possible ahead of time, don’t be afraid of the grill or even placing a tall order with the local pizza shop. Instead of offering table service, offer different food stations that will make it easy for your guests to get the food they want without the hassle (for everyone).

Make it Personal

Find some creative ways to really personalize the decorations for this big day. It is, after all, the last day the bride and groom will spend before joining rings (and lives). Custom chocolates will be loved (and remembered) by everyone at the party – custom water bottle labels are always a fun conversation starter!

Gift Idea for Rehearsal Dinners

Rehearsal Dinners are typically a time when brides and grooms thank their bridesmaids and groomsmen with custom gifts that show how much they appreciate all of the help they received in tying the wedding together. Personalized wine bottle labels can take an ordinary bottle of wine and make it shine! Regardless of your price range, you can make custom mini bottles or larger bottles easily so they sparkle.

Create Easy Personalized Wedding Invitations

by

If you’re like most people, you want your wedding invitations to be beautiful. They should fully represent the style and character of the bride and groom, and make the recipient feel like they’re attending the event of the year. You can achieve this with custom wedding labels, and other high quality paper products. Here are a few ways to add the labels to your invitations to give them your own unique quality, without skimping out on the details.

Signature Labels

signatureIf you want to really personalize your wedding invitations, try adding a beautiful signature label at the bottom. This can be an exact replica of the bride and grooms signature on a beautiful labeled paper. You can use custom wedding labels for this, or you can actually print them out on your own software program. Just make sure that you place them at the bottom underneath a personalized statement that you add to the invitations. This will make the invitation itself feel more intimate.

Picture Labels

pictureAnother way to be unique with your wedding invitations is to add picture labels to them. This can be a fun picture of either the bride or groom, or a picture of the two of you together. This idea can be really helpful for sending invitations to friends and loved ones that you haven’t seen in a while, or to anyone that can appreciate something different. Make sure that the picture you choose is high quality and captures your character and personality.

Large Text Labels

large textDepending on the size of your invitation, you can actually purchase custom wedding labels to cover the entire piece. This is a unique way to personalize the invitations, and create them exactly the way you want them to look. You can choose from several different designs and backgrounds, and your font possibilities are virtually endless. If you plan to go this route, make sure that you get labels that are a few inches smaller than the invitation so that you have room for proper placement. You may need to practice placing them a few times in order to get the procedure absolutely perfect.

Using custom wedding labels with your wedding invitations is a great way to show your style and character. They are easy to design, and virtually inexpensive to order. If you plan to do this on your own, make sure that you use a software program that gives you a lot of options.
